Welcome to Life Through Bifocals

Life is not always clear and easy to figure out. So grab a cup of coffee and your bifocals and let's see what we can see.

Marching on with Wednesday Hodgepodge

 

1. Do you play games of luck/chance for money? Have you ever played bingo for money? Visited a casino? Placed a bet on a horse? Bought a lottery ticket?
I have bought a lottery ticket in the past, when the jackpot is very high but other than that - no.

2. Will you be preparing and/or dining on the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage meal this St. Patrick's Day? Mashed-baked-hash browned-french fried...your favorite way to have potatoes?
I don't like Corned beef  so----- no. I do like Cabbage and sweet potatoes cooked anyway at all but that is not much of a meal so not sure yet what I'll add to it....maybe chicken, I like chicken.

3. What's the last thing you felt 'green with envy' over?
I'm not the envous type very often. I am very happy when good things happen to others but if I had to pick something then it would be "craft room envy" have you seen some of those craft rooms on Pinterest? Oh my, that would be loverly


4. What's at the end of your rainbow?
HEAVEN

5. March 12th marks the anniversary of the death of Anne Frank (June 12, 1929-March, 1945). Anne's diary detailing her time spent hiding from the Nazi's during the war ranks as one of the best selling books of all time. Besides your blog, do you keep any sort of diary or journal? Was this a habit you developed as a child or is journaling something new for you?
I have a spot in my iPad where I write (maybe jot down is a better word) things that have happened to me.  I do believe that everyone has a story in them.  It's just getting the story out that seems to be the problem with me.

6. What's an item in your home or closet that contains every color of the rainbow?
Oh My, I really don't think I have any one item in my home or closet that has every color of the rainbow but I do have this hanging in my craft room/home office that I love.


7. Write a limerick with you as the subject. You can do it!! Just remember this is a family friendly blog...don't make me get out my wooden spoon.

OK here goes:
There once was a girl named Lynn
Who wanted an identical twin
Oh the schemes they would pull
And be a hand full
We would get under our mother's skin

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I finally dowloaded the novel Polar Night by Julie Flanders.  Oh My! this novel his her debut novel and it grabed me in the first few lines.  This novel has just about everything, a greving cop, a cold case, a missing girl, a mystery that goes back 100 years, and...well I would hate to give it away for anyone still reading it.  Julie has a blog and she is very talented.  If you are looking for a great mystery with lots of subplots - consider getting this one and then staying up late reading it because you will not be able to put it down.  Oh, Julie - this would make a great movie!!!!!!! Not that I'm hinting at anything mind you but the visuals of the Northern Lights!!!

  1. An organized craft room would be great, wouldn't it? My stuff is stuck in the corner of a room.

    The book you're reading sounds like a great one!

    1. I never thought I would like Mysteries but I'm finding myself really enjoying them now. Never did read any of the Nancy Drew or Harding Boys so no idea why mysteries appeal to me now - but they do.

    1. Oh Liz, you really play along. Joyce puts out the questions on Tuesday so you have time to think about your answer. It really is fun.

  8. Oh that does look like a good book! I put it on my Nook wish list! Thanks for the recommendation!

    I'd love one of those fancy schancy craft rooms, but I have to have a cork board. I haven't had one in the 6 years since I left Michigan and I'm a mess - I'd always had a cork board; it keeps me balanced.

    1. Yes a cork board for all those notes and ideas is a great way to stay organized. I have a card table tucked into my home office. Not anything facny there and no cork board at all!! UMMMM you got me thinking now....

  9. I'm thinking about trying some corned beef and cabbage in my crock pot. I have never made it before! I said happiness and heaven. Enjoyed your limerick.....

    1. You should try it! Many people LOVE corned beef and cabbage, just not me. I've not made it 40+ years of marriage and we're OK with that.

  10. i've often dreamed of being a twin...i was raised around a couple of sets of twins...they either were very happy or very mad at each other. it made life interesting

    1. There was a set of twins in grade school who dressed alike. One would go to science class and one would go to math class as the other twin. Teachers finally figured it out when one was home sick... So funny, even the nuns laughed and that was not a easy thing to do....

    1. Joyce, Thank you for the questions - I have no idea how you do this every week but I am so happy to join in.

  13. Oh my yes! I totally forgot my sewing-room envy! How I'd love a whole room just for my sewing ... with plenty of storage (no more storing fabrics in a large plastic bin slid underneath my metal folding table where I cut and sew).

    And thanks for the book recommendation ... I'm always on the lookout for a good book. ;-)

    1. You're welcome for the book recommendation. I hope you do get it and enjoy it as well. Yes, craft rooms seem to take a back seat in our home. Oh well, I can dream right?

  14. Totally agree, Julie's book is great. It brings you in quick and doesn't let go, for sure :)
